In 1993, Surfoz Surf Shop was born in order to give young surfers and bodyboarders the necessary infrastructure and support to develop their sporting capacities. Then in 2004 the first surfing and bodyboarding school in Foz Do Arehlo "Surfoz Surf School" was created. This gave young surfers and bodyboarders the opportunity to learn to practice the sport safely.
Foz do Arelho has great waves and swell . However, when the surfing conditions in Foz are not optimal, there is the possibilities to find other beaches near by such as Penich which has the best European Surf spots.
